Everyone, meet the newest addition to our family, Kubrick
After a long trip trying to get him here (he did SO well on the plane - slept on my lap the whole way and didn't make a sound), Kubrick has finally arrived.
These are the pictures I thought looked best... some are of the hotel last night and others are of him here at home. He is a very good dog... doesn't mind strangers or other dogs and really likes kids. His one problem, I have to say, is barking, and I don't mean at other people (we just had food delivered and Kubrick didn't even look at the door - or care at all that the doorbell rang), he barks when he wants my attention and I've been ignoring him when he barks, but he will keep it up for a long while. We put him in his expen so that we could have dinner (it's still in the same room - he could see us) and he totally flipped out, barking and whining. We tried shush, quiet and spraying water and then it came down to ignoring him (for an almost non-stop ten minutes).
I only took him out after he had the barking/whining stopped for at least one minute straight and gave him lots of attention, but he did bark for a long time and I'm worried about the neighbors. Hopefully we can break him out of this sometime soon, but it's still the first day and I guess I'm expecting too much.
He is stuck to me like glue... goes wherever I go and goes berserk if I leave one room to go into the next and he can't follow (no barking though - yay!). He is very loving and gives lots of kisses... I feel very loved and of course I already love him and his sweet face.
PS: He is really good about using the pee pads for pee but not for poop... we'll work on that one. One step at a time.
